Success Stories from Our Community

“Spewak Training was the cornerstone to what has become my passion for running.  When I started training with Mark I was absolutely terrified yet excited to take on what would be the most intense physical challenge I had ever undertaken.  We started our training in early January 2017 for the GO! half marathon I went on to complete in early April of 2017.

Throughout my training Mark ensured I not only knew what to do but why I was doing it.  There was absolutely no history of running in my past so this running thing was all very foreign to me, even the basics.  In the early days you can imagine how defeated I felt when I was only able to run/walk 1 mile, knowing I had 12.5 more to complete in the next 3 months.  In every instance of self- doubt, which happened frequently, I was reassured I was exactly where I needed to be by my coach.

Mile by mile I gained strength and endurance and ultimately dominated the half marathon completing the race with an average of a 12 minute mile- The pride I felt was immeasurable and carried no price tag high enough for the confidence gained and that I have kept ever since.  In the year to follow I have completed another GO half marathon, 4 -5k’s, 1- 7k and 1-15 k. My continued love of running is something I will carry with me for years to come and owe in huge part to the support given from Spewak Training.

Running has effected every aspect of my life in the most positive way imaginable.  My career, personal life, physical and mental well- being have been improved upon since starting this wonderful passion of running.  Thank you Coach Mark and Spewak Training!”

“Last year I chose to work with Mark Spewak of Spewak Training to prepare for the GO! St. Louis half marathon. GO! events are the best! They are organized, run smoothly, and most importantly, are so much fun! Whether it’s running by pirates and ghosts at Halloween or over the Mississippi River in the spring, GO! makes things exciting in the best way possible. Mark is an incredible coach and person—his commitment to the sport of running and each of his athletes is remarkable. In the first 4 months of training, Mark’s excellent plan and continual encouragement led me to a 14 minute PR in my half-marathon. I’m still in awe of how far I’ve come and it was Mark that made me believe it was possible. You are lucky if you get to know Mark as a person, and even luckier to have him as a coach. Spewak Training is truly the best!”
